$125 Budget Weekly Menu –After two years of $100 Budget Menus , we’ve increased the grocery budget to $125 a week for six people including three teens.
(Please Note: You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales are probably different in your area and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu.)
